Caption: Computer microchip factory worker. Row of semiconductor computer microchips being inspected by a worker. She is wearing gloves and working in a clean room to avoid contaminating the delicate, microscopic silicon components with skin oils and cells. Each square area of silicon will have been doped with chemicals to produce the desired semiconductor properties, and then etched to form a complex set of microscopic circuitry. Semiconductor microchips are the basis of modern computers. This factory is operated by Mikron, the largest manufacturer of computer microchips in Russia. The factory is in Zelenograd near Moscow. Photographed in 2006.
